Courthouse with black mold to get deep clean

PORTALES, N.M. (KRQE) – Workers at a New Mexico courthouse are no longer being allowed inside because a serious health risk hasn’t gotten any better.

Late last month, eight different types of mold, including toxic black mold, were found inside the Roosevelt County courthouse in Portales.

A couple of tests have been done to determine the source but the results have not come back yet, so the county manager says it was best to keep workers out and close the court all week for cleaning.

The courthouse expected to reopen May 12th or when an environmental consultant approves it.

Court proceedings are being handled in Clovis.
